This game rocks. I can't wait until the series are decently advertised and introduced to the West so they can finally start making sequels in more western dominated platforms, like the PS3/Xbox360) or even the PC.

If they manage to pull off controls as good as the ones in Tribes, I'm sold. @Dragonknight0: It's a somewhat old game that involved plenty of jetpack asskicking fun. I suggest you check it out. There's videos on youtube. The most recent game was Tribes: Vengeance, but it was very different from Tribes I and Tribes II.
1 - The Resident Evil main series have NEVER allowed you to run and shoot. 2 - In a zombie invasion, run n' gun is NOT the best way to save your ammo. When it comes to the inventory, if the game paused when you accessed it, online coop mode would be THE most boring experience of all time, with people constantly having to stop whenever someone needed to "equip the grenades", thus breaking the action. 3 - Having to stop before firing actually means more adrenaline because you either run if you're in trouble, or fight if you need. If we could all go trigger happy while letting zombies eat dust, this would be Dead Rising, which depite good, is NOT Resident Evil. Besides, now you get a simple, manageable inventory with shortcuts! More than enough for a primary and secondary weapon, a support item like a grenade, and healing equipment. What else could you want?
The wonderful part about Final Fantasy is that every once in a while the story departs into something entirely new, often unrelated to previous games. This keeps the series refreshing and innovative. The bad part? I didn't understand ANYTHING of what I saw, lol. It looks like it may have a really great plot, like so many other FFs, but for now I have no idea what was going on in that trailer. =P The characters look cool though. The setting's nice and the new combat system look absolutely BRILLIANT.
The computer is the still indisputed king in First Person Shooters(due to the mouse), Real Time Strategy(due to the mouse and the variety of hotkeys and shortcuts in the keyboard) and MMORPGs(due to the usually more stable internet connection and the mouse and the keyboard and pretty much everything else about computers, =P). Consoles kick ass, true, and I'm sure playing a fighting game in a computer is nowhere near as intuitive as it is in a console, but to say that computers will lose their usefulness in terms of gaming is a very ignorant statement!
I was reasonably interested in this but after playing the Beta I have to say these two things: A- I ain't paying for virtual clothes or virtual apartments when I can pay for REAL clothes and REAL REAL estate ( sorry for the play on words =P ). B- Without paying for clothes, these characters have EVEN LESS things to wear than the Xbox 360 Avatars, which is saying alot, since Home is supposed to be all about social interaction and virtual characters.
As someone who owns both a PS3 and an Xbox360, I must say there is no doubt about one thing: If you are to buy a japanese game or a game based on japanese anime, BUY THE ONE FOR THE PS3. They're just more appropriate. I still buy ALL my other games for the Xbox360 though. I just like the online better even if I have to pay for it. And the PS3 controller is kind of tiny, so I just keep my PS3 for exclusives ( MGS, Uncharted ) and japanese titles. ( Final Fantasy, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm ) =P
Moxomule knows what he's talking about. I know his post is large, but basically: Poor Anascape didn't have the money to invest on their wonderful idea. But what were they gonna do? Let someone use it instead? Of course not! They worked hard to develop this concept, so they filed a patent. Thanks to the law, and their patent, they can now wait until they have the money to invest on it OR sell it to others for cash. Since they don't have the money, they might as well let others use this technology, for the good of the consumers! So they did. And they lent it to Sony, which has been paying since 2004. But NINTENDO, on the other hand, instead of paying for someone else's idea, decided to pretend they never knew, and instead develop their own six axis controller without even discussing it with Anascape first. Poor Anascape, of course, isn't going to let the Big bosses do whatever they want and push him over. He's gonna fight back, like every little guy should. I like Nintendo, but heck, this time they're wrong. Go, go Anascape!
